Honda settlement: Will judge rethink?
A San Diego judge is giving no signs that he will reconsider his tentative approval of a settlement agreement that would give owners of Honda Civic hybrids up to $200 cash over claims that fuel economy was inflated.
Superior Court Judge Timothy Taylor listened to two hours of arguments Friday before saying he’d issue a final ruling soon.
Owners of about 200,000 vehicles from model years 2003-09 would get funds.
1st piece of ‘Electric Highway’ gets juice
central point, ore.
Electric-car owners riding along Oregon’s Interstate 5 don’t have to worry about running out of juice on the open road.
The first major stretch of an “Electric Highway” on the West Coast from Canada to Mexico went operational Friday with the opening of fast-charging stations along 160 miles of the interstate.
The eight stations stretch from the California border north to the Oregon city of Cottage Grove and are located at gas stations, restaurants and motels just off I-5, the nation’s second-busiest interstate.
